Whoever is planted in the Tao will not be rooted up. Whoever embraces the Tao will not slip away.

Her name will be held in honor from generation to generation.

Let the Tao be present in your life and you will become genuine.

Let it be present in your family and your family will flourish.

Let it be present in your country and your country will be an example to all countries in the world.

Let it be present in the universe and the universe will sing.

How do I know this is true? By looking inside myself.
